circles and cross quilt

my mother found this small quilt (about 1.5'x2.5') at an estate or yard sale. i borrowed it for a women's retreat i led in Mississippi earlier this year. i love the color combinations and the contrasts of solid & pattern, especially the vintage fabric with the red. the circles speak to me, but also the "cross" patterns i see in the fabric. i left this with my mother, as i wasn't prepared to ask for it, but i hope to make some sort of traveling parament for an altar or table.
